This is an archive of the Treatment Action Campaign's public documents from December 1998 until October 2008. I created this website because the TAC's website appears unmaintained and people were concerned that it
was becoming increasingly hard to find important documents.

The menu items have been slightly edited and a new stylesheet applied to the site. But none of the documents have been edited, not even for minor errors. The text appears on this site as obtained from the Internet Archive.

The period covered by the archive encompassed the campaign for HIV medicines, the civil disobedience campaigns, the Competition Commission complaints, the 2008 xenophobic violence and the PMTCT, Khayelitsha health workers and Matthias Rath court cases.

Dismissed Khayelitsha Health Workers

On 11 June 2007, 41 workers at clinics in Khayelitsha were dismissed during a strike. The TAC and five patients filed an urgent application with the Cape High Court. They sought a court order that the state had to take measures to restore functioning health services in Khayelitsha and that the workers had to be reinstated. On 26 June Judge Desai ordered the "respondents to restore and guarantee the provision of reasonably functioning health services in Khayelitsha including emergency, chronic, child and reproductive health services." He awarded costs to the Applicants.
